WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CERTIFY FOOD AND ITS QUALITY

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO CERTIFY FOOD AND ITS QUALITY ?

CERTIFICATION NEEDS:-

Food safety certification is a third-party verification of whether products, processes, or systems in the food supply chain meet recognized food safety standards, and are different from other conformity assessment systems (such as supplier declarations, laboratory test reports, or reports from regulatory agencies). The safety certification is based on the results of tests, inspections, and audits, and gives consumers’ confidence because the company’s products and/or systems have been rigorously tested and meet the national and international industry standards adopted by qualified third parties. Product certification attests that a meal product complies with the protection, health to be used, and/or interchange ability traits described in standards, and in specs supplementary to standards, in which they’re asked through the market.

IFS Standards are uniform meals, product, and carrier requirements operated via way of means of the IFS, an affiliation of outlets and business companies. The reason for the harmonized IFS requirements and its certification in Saudi is to look into producers, logistics companies, agents, and marketers to make certain they may be capable of manufacture and manage security products.

The IFS Standards presently accommodate 8 requirements evolved for stakeholders concerned in all ranges of the meals’ delivery chain. By reaching IFS certification in Saudi you reveal that your organization has set up procedures appropriate for making sure meals and product safety, and carried out applicable purchaser specifications.

Organizational certification demonstrates that, for example, a meal manufacturer’s first-class, environmental or different control machine has conformed to the applicable control machine standards. Standards for control structures practice the strategies that an enterprise employs to make its merchandise or supply its offerings instead of to the real services or products themselves.

When there aren’t any felony necessities for a meal region commercial enterprise to comply with standards, meal protection certification is voluntary. In those cases, an enterprise might also additionally have its very own motives for looking for a certification of conformity to a given standard, which includes an inner product requirement, or the choice to benefit a strategic benefit with inside the market considering meals protection certification can constitute a signal of meals first-class and protection to consumers.

WHY IS QUALITY IMPORTANT ?

If an economic system or an organization desires to keep its desirable fine requirements and marketplace image, suitable specification schemes have to be evolved for all its merchandise. Most agencies need product specifications, which outline the usual fine of their merchandise and manufacturing procedures, inclusive of picking, storage, delivery, delivery, and transportation. Companies that have now no longer delivered manipulate standards may also rating sporadic fulfilment at the marketplace. Moreover, they could now no longer be capable of produce more treasured services, if insisting on recognition of all manufacturing, without evaluation of its fine and availability at the marketplace.

How do you carry out assessment of TACCP, VACCP and ready your organization for FSSC 22000 V5

While HACCP helps you identify the scientific reasons to reduce Food safety incidents, TACCP and VACCP have different intent.

TACCPThreat Assessment Critical Control Point have been incorporated in many FSMS standards such as FSSC 22000 Version 5, BRC, SQF and many more in the form of Food defence mechanism.

Threats foreseen or unforeseen from various sources such as Disgruntled individuals, Extremists, Opportunist, Cyber criminal, Extortionist are assessed and prioritised. This is also referred to Behaviour Motivated Adulteration.

Top Priority threats are considered as Critical control point and treated or terminated using Protective controls. These controls have to be reviewed atleast annually or as and when an incident occurs. Guidelines such as PAS 96 can be used as a reference and basis to assess the threats and prioritise them.

 

VACCP – Vulnerability Assessment Critical control point have also been incorporated in BRC, FSSC 22000 Version 5.

Organisations who are certified to FSSC 22000 V3.1 and upgrading to FSSC 22000 V5 should ensure that a separate Assessment is carried out emphasising on Economically Motivated Adulteration EMA. All such risks are assessed and prioritised to ensure that appropriate Protective controls are established, followed with pre determined review mechanism.
